We are looking for a motivated research master student to work with us on the last phase of a large longitudinal study (427 participants) about stress vulnerability and resilience at the Donders Institute (Radboud University Nijmegen). In this project, we use state of the art affective science paradigms incorporating hormonal, genetic, physiological, behavioral and task-related and resting state fMRI measures to predict development of stress-related symptoms. Besides clinical questions, our data sets also allows to answer more fundamental questions like neural control over automatic defensive reactions, and how this is altered by acute threat. It is an excellent opportunity to get hands-on experience with a great variety of techniques! You can choose your own research question within this project.
Preferred starting date: september of 2017, for a duration of 6-12 months.
